Habitat for Humanity in Nova Scotia

Habitat for Humanity Canada's vision, mission and values are delivered by Habitat for Humanity affiliates that work in over 300 communities across Canada. Habitat for Humanity Canada affiliates select and prepare partner families for homeownership, manage the construction of Habitat homes, and hold partner family mortgages. They play a vital role at the local level by engaging community volunteers, securing resources, increasing the profile of Habitat for Humanity and raising awareness about the issue of affordable homeownership in their communities.

In Nova Scotia Habitat for Humanity provides Affordable homeownership opportunities for low income working Nova Scotia families. With the help of volunteer builders, sponsor money and donor materials we construct energy efficient affordable homes for purchase by low income families. It is part of our mandate to provide educational opportunities on home maintenance and budgeting for homeownership.

World Habitat Day 2014 World-Habitat-Day

In 1985 the United Nations declared the first Monday in October World Habitat Day. This day is intended as a day to reflect on the state of our towns and cities and what we want our future to look like. Habitat for Humanity in communities around the World mark this day in a variety of ways. In Nova Scotia we will recognize WHD from AV to CB. The Valley is hosting an event with local dignitaries and media outreach. In HRM the City will light up Town Hall in Habitat Blue and Green from dusk on October 6th until dawn on October 7th. In addition, Global will host Lindsay Construction and HFHNS on a morning show segment.  We will also be releasing a media advisory to announce our families to the communities.  Please watch for our WHD Twitter campaign.

 

Get Ready, Lindsay Construction is joining HFHNS in Spryfield.

As we are moving forward with our build in East Preston we are preparing to launch our newest build in Spryfield. Lindsay Construction ands their Partners will be building the first tow homes on the land that will someday host up to 40 Habitat for Humanity homes.  We are exctied and hope many of you will be able to join us for this great event. We will have more information available as dates are finalized.
